Accenture is a great company to work for

Client Financial Management Specialist (Current Employee)
Chicago, IL

I have been working at Accenture full-time for more than 3 years

ProsGood benefits, great people, ample room for advancement, plenty of vacation time. This is a well run company that cares about its employees.

ConsSalaries are average, difficult to use all of your PTO due work load.

Advice to Senior ManagementIncrease compensation, particularly yearly salary increases, they barely keep up with inflation, and inflation is very low. Off shoring many jobs in the Finance department and those resources can be hit or miss.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

Great environment to grow professionally

Summer Intern (Former Employee)
Chicago, IL

I worked at Accenture as an intern for less than a year

ProsCulture was decent. People were very motivated, however they talked about very surface level topics. Probably will never be able to talk to them outside of the work place. Deadlines were met no matter what. Work quality was top-notch and was characteristic of a company that is recognized world-wide. Work environment was sometimes high-stress.

ConsA lot of the work can sometimes be busy-work. It was probably because I was an intern though. Senior management was sometimes available to talk to, however, when they say that partners were close, they mean it in a more physical sense and they were never available for a chat.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

Still seems a great place to start a career

Management Consulting Senior Manager (Former Employee)
Chicago, IL

I worked at Accenture full-time for more than 8 years

ProsLots of diverse experiences as a new college hire. Very large outsourcing jobs give great business running experience for those that seek it out.

ConsA rapidly commoditizing business, lots of fluff at the upper levels, and a Wall St centric disconnected leadership. Very difficult place for experienced hires above Manager level.

Advice to Senior ManagementSpend a month in the field with Senior Manager and junior managing directors.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
